Tiffany Bair Gillooly: Look in mirror, Burr

November 20, 2013 

While reading in the Nov. 14 Under the Dome piece about Sen. Richard Burr’s introducing a bill to end pensions for new federal employees, my eyes widened when I saw, “We cannot ask taxpayers to continue to foot the bill for public employee benefits that are far more generous than their own.”

I immediately thought, “Start with Congress.”
